An explosion of colors to say farewell to the first TGV Sud-Est high-speed train. Set TGV 01, named ‘Patrick’, retires after 41 years of service. For this occasion, both power cars got back their original orange livery. Intermediate cars got back SNCF older blue-silver paint scheme, so TGV 01 now sports all three liveries it has had during its active career. Thanks to Christophe Masse we can show you the EMU during its farewell tour on 06.02.2020:

We noted that only one of the power cars got back large old-skool SNCF logos, it is not visible on the picture above, but you can see it here. As the cars do not have the original front hatches anymore, the grey part had to be mimicked.
